Collin College is building in Wylie! Across from City Hall on Country Club Road there is 43.68 acres of land that will be used for the facility. They plan to break ground in Wylie within 3 years, building a 415,000 square foot building with a capacity for 7,500 students. “We are very excited to be establishing a new campus in Wylie and to be making higher education more convenient for southeastern Collin County,” said Dr. Bob Collins, who chairs the Collin College Board of Trustees. “Wylie community leaders, including both city and school district, have been great partners in enabling this project to move forward. Without their help, cooperation and persistence we couldn’t have made this possible.”
Collin College delivers a quality education with low tuition. It serves nearly 52,000 credit and continuing education students annually. It also offers more than 100 degrees and certificates. “The only public college in the county, Collin College is a partner to business, government and industry, providing customized training and workforce development. In addition, the college operates the Collin Higher Education Center, which serves 3,300 additional students each year in partnership with The University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Woman’s University, Texas A&M University-Commerce, Texas Tech University and the University of North Texas.”
I am thrilled this will be coming to our area and excited to watch the building process happen over the next few years. It will be a wonderful addition to our community.

We had a successful Stiletto Walk this past weekend. The Chi Zeta Omega Chapter held it’s 4th annual walk benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association at Breckinridge Park in Richardson. We raised a total of $3,000.00! It was a morning full of high energy with exercise, massages, vendors on hand, information on Alzheimer and healthy snacks. I love serving in our community!
